Audio file won't play - play() not working?

Hello again,

The below method is definitely called upon a mouseclick on the JButton, because the console prints "Hello there!" when I do. However, I can't get the audio clip to play when I do so. I'm using NetBeans, and just dragged and dropped the .au file into my source package, so it shows the binary '' file in the same directory as my applet. I've made sure my volume is up, and the compiler doesn't generate any errors (no run-time errors, either). Any ideas on why I can't get this audio file to play? Thanks in advance!

I'm having pretty much the same problem with MIDI messages. Please see this thread if you think you can help.
